Betting firm that called May votes sees Johnson beaten in tomorrow's showdown
The betting firm says that Johnson is set to lose by seven votes tomorrow
Sporting Index, a betting firm which called all three of Theresa May's failed votes, said that Boris Johnson will win the backing of 313 lawmakers tomorrow, falling just short of the 320 votes he need to get his Brexit deal through.
The firm said that:
"The most likely sticking point could be the support of the DUP, with early signs suggesting that Arlene Foster and co. could still scupper the deal passing through parliament."
Here is the firm's track record for the three votes faced by Theresa May on her Brexit deal during her tenure as prime minister:
- January - Forecast: May to lose by 218 votes; Actual: May lost by 230 votes
- March - Forecast: May to lose by 148 votes; Actual: May lost by 149 votes
- April - Forecast: May to lose by 60 votes; Actual: May lost by 58 votes
